    Everbody make 5 bold predictions. Here's mine:

    1) Four goalies will be selected in the first round (Montoya, Schwarz, Dubnyk and Schneider - in that order).

    2) Robbie Schremp will be a top 10 pick.

    3) The Rangers will trade up from 24. Two possibilities: CGY's 19th and 4th rounder for the 24th and the 51st, or NSH's 15th for the 24th and 37th.

    4) Nine defenseman will be selected in round one.

    5) Viktor Alexandrov will not be a 1st round pick.

    Well, maybe Montreal would be interested in a trade like that. I would do it to have a 2nd round pick and maybe they would like to trade up to drafted a guy like Fransson...

    1) Glen Sather will do something stupid.
    2) Alexandre Radulov will be a top 15 pick
    3) There will be no trades in the top 10 picks
    4) The Devils will make a very smart pick
    5) Mike Milbury was playing us all for chumps with his "mystery player." He doesn't know what he's going to do.

    I'll take a stab at a few fearless predictions:

    1. The 'Canes will make a big splash in front of their fans, possibly a major trade or maybe with the selection of a flashy player (Schremp?).

    2. Patrick Lalime will have a new home after Saturday.

    3. Somebody is going to trade up to draft Boris Valabik.

    4. Wojtek Wolski will slip out of Round 1.

    5. Somebody will deal a 2005 first-round pick in order to move up to a top-10 position on Saturday.

    1. Thelen will take a fall out of the top 15.

    2. Schneider will be the last player picked in the first round.

    3. LA Kings go Defense over goaltending if Schwarz is gone.

    4. O'Neill falls out of the first round.

    And finally...

    5. Caps go Malkin, Ryan Whitney, and 31st overall instead of Ovechkin (hows that for bold :eek: )

    1. Wolski falls out of the first round completely
    2. Someone takes a chance on Pineault and surprises some people.
    3. Lauri Korpikoski edges in as a top 10 pick with Atlanta.
    4. Penguins trade for an addition mid first rounder.
    5. Viktor Alexandrov is selected in the 10-25 range of the first round tommorow.

    Hey, you said bold.
     
  15. 1. If Korpikoski is on the board when the Blues select, they'll take him. Same with Wolski.

    2. Demitra gets traded.

    3. Barker to Chicago

    4. After Barker is taken with the 3rd pick, Columbus asks for time to consider trading the pick, but don't and select Olesz or possibly Meszaros

    5. Fla drafts Ladd

    my 5

    1. glen sather actually surprises everyone by not making any stupid trades...he trades two 2nd round picks for a low 1st...also trades a 2nd for radek bonk(only 28,will work out well with guys like balej on wing).
    2. the devils will select a great player, bruce graham in the 1st round(22nd)
    3. andrew ladd will go higher than expected, at #4 or #5
    4. lalime will end up in st.louis in a trade involving demitra
    5. caps will trade 1st overall to pitt for 2nd overall and 2 prospects

    my turn

    1. Mike Milbury trades Rick DiPietro for a top pick to either take montoya or schwartzy, then next year and so on repeat at nausea cause no one will fire the bum.

    2. Come October, not one pick in this draft will be suiting up for an NHL team, heck I will go bolder then that, not one player of any previous draft will be suiting up for an NHL team.

    3. Every single scout on the Toronto Maple Leaf staff will decide to walk out after realizing they work all season scouting guys just to determine if the small kid who no one thinks will make the NHL one day and who isn't very gifted is a better pick then the big guy who doesn't skate but stands there and looks intimidating.

    4. After selecting Ovechkin, Washington will be horrified to find he is missing. An abduction note in Mario Lemieux's hand writing will say "he has to be my replacement, lottery schmottery. WE sucked all year on purpose for him."

    5. After hearing the Leafs first selection, the two fans remaining in attendance will look at each other and say "why the hell are we still here?!"
